Mrs. Mary Bryan Asleep
Friday, last, Mrs. Mary Bryan and old time resident of Springville passed into the realm of the sleepers where lie the countless dead. She was put to final rest by an ----- attack of pneumonia, while at Manti where she had been a temple worker during the last 10 years.
Born in England, she was attracted by the preaching of Mormonism, and joined them. Her husband died in 1862 and the next year she came to Utah with a company of immigrants traversing the old walk with an oxen team, arriving in Springville the autumn of that year.
Mrs. Bryan was a kind, helping woman, and while at Manti she was said to have been a first class, dedicated faithful worker. John Bryan is her only surviving child.
The funeral was held at the First Ward Church, Sunday afternoon where Bp. Huntington was in charge and made remarks. The other speakers were Elders Jos. D. Reynolds, Benjamin T. Blanchard and J.S. Boyer.
